nevermind i guess i read it wrong....i know the cars have hydroboost, i thought he was saying that his brakes LOCKED not that they were hard to push, like the calipers seized...ive lost power while driving before, and i know the feeling of the hydroboost shutting off...but by "my bakes locked" that makes it sound like his brakes all seized and the car started skidding

The sound would only come on when I would turn the AC On. I popped the hood and I noticed on the bottom left pulley there were strings of black material wrapped around it and I took it off. I noticed my belt looked a bit weird but I drove it home. About 30 seconds from my house, I WOT half way just to get in my other lane, when the battery light appeared on my car and the wheel and brakes locked. I almost crashed twice being about 300 feet from my home. The wheel was impossible to turn and the breaks were hard as ****, luckily I got it into my garage and parked it. I popped the hood and there was no belt ROFL, I looked down on the bottom of the motor where the pullies and stuff are and I can see the belt was shredded everywhere. So do I need a new belt, or water pump or did I really mess my car up ;[

I'm typing at work, so I apologize for all the misspelling, I hope I didn't sound like a ELD student, I'll rephrase if needed. Thanks guys


Also, anyone kno the cost of a repair like this. As in price of products and if installation is hard or not (I wouldn't mind saving money cause of labor)

You didn't hurt it by running it without a power steering belt. The brakes shouldn't lock up though.

That crinkling noise you hurt may have been something getting stuck under the car and getting cooked by the exhaust. Or perhaps a rodent climbed up in there, and got caught by the engine belt and/or exhaust (ask me how I know ).
